L. Glass and Victor Santos, comes FURIOUS a new story where a heroine’s biggest villain may be her past, and Twitter.

Review: Serenity – Leaves On the Wind

What Firefly fans want most is not a second season that picks up ten years after the last episode. They don’t want a Serenity Two that meets up with our favorite characters a decade later. What fans want most is a second season that picks up exactly where season one left off; same characters, same ship, everybody the exact same age where we last saw them.

As this is physically impossible without time-travel, Dark Horse is attempting the next best thing: Leaves on the Wind, a brand new Firefly book that takes place less than a year after Serenity.

Based on the first issue, I’m very optimistic about the series.

In comic books it’s often seen that the hero is a hero to their core.  Even with the increase in anti-heroes the darker, broody, edgy hero still has a relate-able past wrought it tragedy.  This helps readers experience the stories on a more personal level, but what if your hero used to be a terrible person who just woke up and wanted to be better?  Such is the theme in Bryan J. L. Glass and Victor Santos’ Furious #1 coming out later this month.

While the title character deals with her own demons she’ll also have to protect her past from a celebrity obsessed culture meant to mirror our own.  What will the world think when their first ever super hero turns out to be a scum bag?  Can the people trust the good deeds of a reprehensible person?  This won’t be your average beat’em up comic book.  Furious will be a self contained mini series debuting later this month from Dark Horse Comics, but you can get a little taste of Santos’ amazing artwork and Glass’ take on a person searching for redemption.

The Expanded World of Hellboy

Mike Mignola’s infernal creation is getting a lot of love lately: with several single issues and trades either just released or about to be released, all featuring Red and his family and friends (and enemies of course) now is a good time to dip your toes in the B.P.R.D. universe. Not that it’s ever a bad time for Hellboy, seeing as how Dark Horse starts a new mini-series every few months. But 2013’s been an especially prolific year for the big guy.
